First Japanese Public Speech

I gave my first speech in Japanese (in-person) this week.

It was a great experience. WaniKani has been a big part of my ability to read and speak Japanese at a much faster rate than before. Easily the best Kanji learning tool I’ve used (and I’ve tried many over the years).

You can watch the speech, read the transcript, and see how I put it together in under 3 hours at the link below.

Have you ever given a speech in Japanese? What was your experience like?


Congrats! Someday maybe I will that.


Keep practicing and you can do it!


I will definitely keep working. I may never give a speech, but there are a couple of Japanese people I’d love to speak to in a somewhat adult manner.
